    GeForce 2 problems...

    Hello.

    I have recently upgraded my computer, and i have a Creative GeForce 2 Pro.
    The problem is, is that i am experiencing very low framerates in all games, much lower than i should be getting.
    My old system was running games faster before the upgrades.

    I have tried the latest drivers from Creative, and the latest detonator ones.
    With the detonators i get a performance incrase, but i am sure it is not running as well as it should.

    I am also experiencing Blue Screens on start up (claiming an error in VxD, or the like).
    This error will also appear and lockup my system during the game "Max payne" as well.
    Would this be due to the graphics card?

    Would anyone recommend some drivers, or a way to help fix this problem?

    I will list my hardware here:

    AMD Athlon 1.2Ghz
    256 PC-133 DIMM RAM
    Creative GeForce 2 Pro
    Videologic SonicFury
    40x CD Drive
    CD-RW drive (forgot exact spec, sorry)
    MicroSoft Intellimouse Explorer
    MicroSoft Internet Keyboard

    I hope someone can help with this, and thank you.

    Just a thought, way dont you just uninstall the det, and your drivers you have loaded, and reinstall the drivers you have on the cd, with the card, and see how that goes, sorry thats all i can think of.

    Thanks for the reply, but unfortuantly i've already tried this.

    Well, i started off with the standard drivers, and then installed the nwer ones to see if any helped...

    I think i'm going to format tommorrow, and reinstall everything again, to see if it makes any difference.


    Hopefully someone else has some ideas/recommendations.

    Thank you.

    Head over to www.geforcefaq.com it contains loads of info on Geforce cards, it really helped me when I got my Creative Annihilator card. Check all your BIOS settings (read em in the FAQ). There are also links to programs to tweak your card.

    Good luck

    I have the latest 4in1's and it still crashes.

    I've been having more lockup problems on my system now, i thought i would get rid of them when i upgraded

    I've just formatted and reinstalled everything again, but the problems are still here. This is very annoying.
